Ada M. Ferrari
Friday 12th of November 1937 - Wednesday 28th of August 2019
Celebration of Life
289 Meadow Valley Rd., Lexington, KY
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our beloved mom on August 28, 2019. She was surrounded by her family and a lot of love. Born on Nov. 12, 1937, she was predeceased by her parents, Ottorino and Maria Ferrari, and her sister Giulia Ferrari. She is survived by the people that brought her the greatest joy in life, her children: Diego d'Angelo, Valeria (Mark) Niehaus, Serena (Jeffrey) Barry, Federico (PeraChanel) d'Angelo, her grandchildren: Alexander, Landon, Andrew, Julia, Emma, Paola, Jeff Jr. Patrick, Brendan, and Cristin. She is also survived by her sister Orietta Letizia, and nieces, Claudia and Marzia and nephew, Stefano.
Ada was born and raised in Rome, Italy where she became a lover of art but most of all classical music and Opera. She taught many people how to listen to and love opera. If you knew Ada, you knew she especially loved German tenor Jonas Kaufmann for whom she traveled all over the world to watch live. Ada had the kindest heart. We will miss her for all eternity and are so grateful that we got to be the ones to call her mom.
A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, Sept 21st, at 289 Meadow Valley Rd. Lexington, from 3-5pm, all are welcome. Services and burial will be held at a later date in Rome, Italy.
Every time we listen to the music she loved we will think of Ada. Always a kind smile. Her neighbors will miss the grace and class she had. Now in the arms of God.
I have many fond memories of Ada. We met in Cincinnati to attend an opera, where Ada was able to give me such rich insights. When Bob and I were planning to spend two weeks traveling in Italy, Ada helped us to plan our itinerary. We had many a laugh together. Truly, I will miss her. May she rest in the happiness of heaven, of a life well lived.

What a kind and loving soul Ada exemplified. She was an excellent ambassador of Italian culture here in the US. I will miss her. May her spirit shine brilliantly and her joy know no bounds in heaven.
